Powerlock for Trade
« on: December 20, 2007, 02:08:35 PM »
Just like it says, got a powerlock for trade. The one without the gut hook, but with the hex adapter. I got it from a forum member who listed it as "almost new." I've only played with it, I haven't even done any work with it. I might've loosened one nut or something. It's nearly new. It's got scissors by the way, and the pliers head says SOG USA. Leather case is nearly new. To be honest, ever since I got it I thought the nicest thing about those powerlocks are the cases.
Nothing against SOG, but the powerlock just isn't for me. What I'm interested in is a good slim folder with a pocket clip.
As an example of what I'm interested in, I picked up a Benchmade 940 the other day and almost bought it....I still might, we'll see.
I am mildly interested in a Leatherman Surge or something really cool. Possibly a good small flashlight. I EDC a Leatherman XTi just so you have an idea. I don't have much use for a blade shorter than my charge's....3.5" or greater would be nice.
By the way, maybe I'm a jerk, but I won't even consider anything Chinese. Frankly I'm not interested in anything Taiwanese either. I prefer American, European and Japanese in that order. I have a thing against carrying stuff in my pockets made by political prisoners and such. Don't need a lecture about Chinese quality. Just don't bother.
I can take a picture of the SOG if anybody's interested, too lazy right now.
p.s. I don't have to trade this, so nobody needs to feel that they have to scrounge their favorite tools to help a fellow tool lover. Worst case scenario I'll throw the powerlock in the glovebox of my car. No harm done.
